Not long now before the darling Ms. Buchanan (aka Carey Mulligan) oozes the glamour of the ’20s with her cropped ‘do and swishing flapper frocks on the silver screen — all of which I can’t wait to see!

But until then, here’s some Great Gatsby inspiration to get your heart racing (or should I say ‘roaring’).

When it comes to nails from the Jazz age, it’s all about digits that represent a touch of art deco. Metallic finishes with gilded gold ascents and rich, jewel tones are what you can expect (and adore).

Forget the fake tan: the roaring 20s were all about porcelain complexions teamed with dark, moody lips and precise brow application. Despite Carey Mulligan channeling a peaches-and-cream skin tone and pale rosy kissers, this tutorial will strike a more winter-appropriate chord with all you makeup mavens out there.


Prepare for the comeback of twenties-inspired bobs and Marcel waves. You can’t get more Gatsby than that. eal everything in with your favourite top coat, throw on a sparkling headband, and you’re ready to hit a Gatsby party.
